We’ve committed ourselves to watching at least one Argentine movie a week (along with a few Gael Garcia Bernal films, because he is hot) on nights we don’t go out.
(I realize now that Brigada Explosiva: Mision Pirata was also an Argentine movie, so this technically should be our second film. But we’re just going to pretend that Brigada Explosiva never happened.)
First (real) film: El Secreto de Sus Ojos (The Secret of Their Eyes)
This movie, based off a book (La Pregunta de Sus Ojos), and directed by Juan Jose Campanella, won the Oscar for best foreign film in 2010. It is awesome. It’s a drama, mystery, thriller, love story…really fantastic. Go rent it.
